Widening the scope: delivery of travel behaviour change initiatives by local government in Victoria

The TravelSmart program in Victoria has developed a grants program to facilitate the delivery of small-scale travel behaviour change projects by local government. Since its inception in 2004, the program has resulted in 13 individual councils receiving grants to deliver 16 different small-scale travel behaviour change projects. A series of workshops and training has been introduced recently and has assisted local government in delivering travel behaviour change projects with no prior experience in doing so. The approach taken to these small-scale projects differs from that taken for the delivery of traditional large-scale TravelSmart projects funded by State government, in both the evaluation and delivery methodologies used. The projects are showing positive results not only in encouraging a modal shift away from single occupant vehicle travel, but also in increasing the capacity of local government to deliver travel behaviour change projects. The program has also resulted in more resources being directed towards the travel behaviour change field, as well as a stronger partnership between local and State government in Victoria.
